According to various (unconfirmed) reports on the net, the new 4th series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be returning to the BBC and CBBC on Monday, 11 October 2010 (with part 1 of The Nightmare Man by Joseph Lidster).
It is unclear whether the new series is back to one episode a week or will it be similar to last year which transmitted two episodes a week. Remember, each story takes two half-hour episodes to tell in The Sarah Jane Adventures. The BBC had commissioned two new series (24 x 30-minutes episodes), this is the first of the two (12 episodes telling six stories). No details as of yet pertaining to this series outside of the UK.
Steven Moffat announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival that the next season of Doctor Who will be split. But not like we think of spilt, according to Steven,
There is another Doctor Who stage show in the works, but Trevor Martin won't be returning for the title role. The Press Association reports the following:
"Actor Nigel Planer - best known for his role as TV hippy Neil in The Young Ones - is to take centre stage in the new live-action Doctor Who tour.
The hit BBC One show is being adapted for the stage in a nine-city arena tour which will begin next month with Daleks and Cybermen among the evil creatures which will be brought to life.
Now Planer has been unveiled as the star who will act as the production's lynchpin, starring as a travelling showman Vorgensen.

One of our LA Correspondents (I can't say which just now) give me word early Monday morning of this article in the LA Times concerning the release of the Blu-ray and DVD of the latest series of Doctor Who (starring Matt Smith). We always suspected it would be November as that has been traditionally the release month of the series box sets in the past, just in time for the holiday shopping season. According to this article by from the LA Times, that date will be November 9, 2010.
In addition, they will include extra content shot for this release.
